White Fire

Everything is tragic
it all just falls apart
when I look into your eyes
the pieces of my heart
I only had an answer
to put it all to bed
I wish sometimes I could take back
every word I said

I walk back in the night, alone
got caught up in my song
forgot where I was sleeping
none of the lights were on
I heard my mother thinking me
right back into my birth
I laugh so loud inside myself
it all began to hurt

So I turned on a picture show
I disappear the lines
as memories came flitting in
the tears blew out my eyes

I see an elevator
a moment I am above
I look for you
Oh, someone who can still remind me of
the tight grip
and the sun lake
and the calm way of all things summer
When I told you
and I told new
and you're not hungover

Fear, sunlight, and you
fear, sunlight, and you
when you don't know that you're wrong
or just how wrong you are

My feet are always heavy
as I inch towards the door
I thought we'd leave this for ourselves
a hundred times before
but I guess we're always leaving
even when we look the same
and it eases me somehow to know that even this will change

If you've still got some light in you then go before it's gone
burn your fire for no witness
it's the only way it's done
fear, sunlight, and you

fear, sunlight, and you
hit the ground and run
hit the ground and run
